London is blooming with conservatories that bring a whole new meaning to the term ‘urban jungle’. It’s easy to enjoy the great outdoors inside these glassy constructions that most DIY nuts could only dream of.
As well as being perfect pockets of leafy calm in the city, these magnificent conservatories house exotic plants, sun lounges and top-class restaurants, so whether you want your cappuccino with a side of cactus or a romantic dinner in an orangery, you’re sorted.
Many of the conservatories below are asking visitors to pre-book a time slot now that they’re open to the public again. And you’ll have to wear a mask. But it’s all worth it to get down with nature without a thing like unpredictable weather getting in the way.
If this is what a gardener’s world looks like, you can count us in.
